Or just suffering from one?

I want to save the world.
Because I am afraid to rescue my own soul from perdition.
Without love
or compassion,
I set about making good works.
I carry, and I soothe,
And patiently guide those I encounter along my way.

Does any true servant know of any other way?  I serve this world faithfully, giving everything, but my soul. 

That is kept locked away in a little box, Thriving?  Rotting? Laughing?  Crying.
Who knows?  Who cares?  It is safe, and so am I.  And this way, by giving nothing I can give more.

So why is that not enough?  Why is there still a burn, where there should only be void?
